Missing Teen Dies in One Vehicle Accident on Hwy 88
Authorities say a Scottsbluff teen who was overdue from a short trip Wednesday died from injuries received in a one-vehicle crash.
The Nebraska State Patrol says 18-year-old Justin Santos was killed in the crash of the tan van he was driving from Lagrange, Wyo. to Redington.
NSP spokesman Cody Thomas says the time of the accident was unclear, but family and friends had been seeking his whereabouts since Wednesday night.
Thomas says the cause is still under investigation, but the crash occurred when the vehicle left the road and struck a bridge support at a creek in Banner County east of Hwy 71.
